By Christian Shelton09 August 2018

Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology has completed manufacture of a 170 tonne capacity vertical cask transporter (VCT) for Holtec International, a global diversified energy technology company, based in the USA. Holtec supplies nuclear equipment and handling systems within the energy industry around the world.

The transporter combines the lifting capability of an hydraulic gantry with the flexibility of a self propelled modular transporter to provide safe handling of spent nuclear fuel, said Enerpac.

The wheeled cask transporter’s modular design has functional and safety features, Enerpac said, including normal steer, 90-degree turn, crab and auto-rotation turn and drive capability. The cab design allows the operator to face the direction of travel. Safe handling of the casks is assured by the VCT’s drop prevention system and integrated cask restraint – an hydraulically operated clamp that secures the cask for transport, the manufacturer said. The cask handling system has low ground bearing pressure and is CE certified.
